Britain to freeze carbon tax at 18 pounds/tonne for 2021-22

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s carbon tax will continue to be frozen at 18 pounds per tonne until April 2022, government budget documents showed on Wednesday.

Britain introduced the tax in April 2013 as a part of its efforts to reduce emissions and meet its climate targets, by making polluting fossil fuel power production more expensive.
